Tony and I love this time of year – however, I do favor fall – but summer is a season we can both agree on! When I got home it became clear that the Weber would do our grilling – its in the backyard, and in the shade – the gas grill is on our front deck and around dinner time its VERY sunny!
We really like this bbq sauce – it made a ton when we tried to make ribs –
We have this giant tree in our backyard – someone once told us it was called a Cigar Tree – at times it has giant green beans hanging off it, in the fall, all the leaves fall overnight at the same time – come summer, it blossoms!
But its short-lived!
I have learned to grill from the grill master himself – my husband Tony! I’ve learned about direct and indirect heat. I’ve learned to stack the coals on one side of the grill, so that you have a hot and cold side – this way, you can sear your meat on the high heat, and remove to the cold side, lid on to complete the cooking process.
I used 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tsp. balsamic, cracked pepper, salt and fresh grated parm as my glaze for the zucchini:
Over the weekend I bought these tomatoes from the $1 rack:
I decided to grill them with my sole red pepper and am going to make a red pepper and tomato soup for my lunch this week:
Off to finish making my soup, then snuggle with my Tony! The new Jon & Kate + 8 is recording now, and I have to catch up on last nights New Food Network Star!
Hope everyone had a great Monday – see you in the a.m.
